    I just ordered the following:

    Item: DSM 2005-2018 Toyota Tacoma Build Your Own Mid-Travel Package #1
    (9531322)
    Choose your OEM Replacement Coil: KING 2.5" Rem. Res. Ext. Travel
    Coilover w/Comp Adj. (pair)($1,827.80) (25001-119-A-E)
    Choose Your Rear Lift Options: ARB/OME Dakar 2.75" Rear Leaf
    Pack($570.00) (EL095R)
    Choose Your Rear Shocks: KING 2.5" Rem. Res. Rear Shocks w/Comp Adj.
    (Dakar)($1,210.30) (25001-121-A-Dakar)
    Choose Your Upper Control Arms: Total Chaos Uni-Ball UCA’s($705.08)
    (TCS96504)

    3 weeks out... waiting on shipment from King. Going to be the longest wait of my life

    I’ll be installing it myself.. We’ll see how it goes. I guess I have 3 weeks to watch all the videos and make sure I have everything I need. This should be perfect for me. Daily driver/ weekend warrior. I will be doing a ton of off roading and planning some trips. I would love the long travel set up but I had to increase my credit card limit just for this and still need rims/tires and everything else. Lol.. I’m hoping it will do me just fine for trail cruzin. Anything I need to know or get before the lift comes in? Any advice? Thanks

    Take it to a good shop, save your sanity, unless you have access to a lift. They never go as planed in your driveway.

    You can take the easy way and pay someone to do it or have the self satisfaction of doing it yourself :rolleyes: I installed my own suspension, it was pretty straightforward. Watch a lot of videos and if you get a buddy to help you will be fine:thumbsup:

    Awesome I just need motivation. The good thing about doing it yourself is better understanding of your truck and how to fix it when it breaks on the trail lol. I haven’t entirely ruled out takin it to a shop I haven’t called one yet, but I’m going to take a wild guess and say, $12-$1500 to install it.

    That’s so true, took me about 10 hrs to do it with help from a buddy lol I took my sweet time and I just helped my friend install his in about 6hrs. I’d say I got a good understanding of the Tacoma suspension:cool:

    A good shop should charge you roughly $500 for an install and, in most cases, include an alignment for that price...

    Don't forget to check your local TW threads. I bet you could get a few guys to come over to help.

    You are doing all that work and with that much apart I would suggest the ECGS bushing install while ur at it. Some have vibs after the lift and some dont. I did so it's just a suggestion.

    I've got that beat! 6 month wait for my custom headlights (which ended up having moisture issues) ... and I'm still waiting on my taillights that were ordered in June of last year. :eek:

    The shop near me in Dixon, Ca already quoted me at first 1400, but was discounted to $1260. That’s to install everything. I would imagine they charge more than $500 that’s only like 5 hrs labor and prob have two guys on it. After they pay their guys they would only be half that. That was the only quote I got so far tho. $500 seems like an excellent price tho.

    Would this be recommended even if my truck has less than 1,000 miles? What causes the vibration? Thanks

    Is there anything else I should order in regards to suspension? The guy at DSM says it comes with everything needed. Anything else to help it be as smooth as possible? Are the hydrolic bumps only used for LT kits? On the Dakar leafs are most people leaving out the top leaf or keeping it in. I almost didn’t buy the comp adjust, but I figured what the hell. Try to get the best mid travel set up I can get.

    Mine went out with 300 miles on it and dealer replaced with new needle bearing. Went out again 100 miles later. Replaced with ECGS bushing and still good at 9k. Just a poor design and been a problem even with 2nd gens and they still use it :notsure:
